Metta World Peace says Kobe vs. MJ would be a score-fest

Kobe Bryant vs Michael Jordan. Two of the best players ever to play the game of basketball. The two greatest shooting guards to ever walk the planet. A duo who defined their own generations, but sadly were never able to go head-to-head at their peaks.

The legends had some exciting battles as their paths crossed on numerous occasions - most notably the 1998 All-Star game - however, Bryant's prime began during Jordan's twilight days with the Washington Wizards, although he was still one hell of a player.

The debate continues to rage on with both men now retired; who is the better player, MJ or Kobe? While Jordan is considered the G.O.A.T, it is a matter of personal preference and, quite often, age.

The question was recently put to Bryant's former teammate, Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace. Rather than give his opinion on who he thinks would win in a one-on-one matchup, World Peace insisted it would be incredibly entertaining to watch, as both men would drop 50 points on the other.

He said: "If both of those guys were in their prime playing against each other, they're both giving each other 50. Kobe is not going to stop Jordan, and Jordan is absolutely not going to stop Kobe."

That is something we'd all love to have seen.
